Sheraton Baltimore Inside

The hotel is within easy walking distance of a variety of bars and restaurants in the downtown area.


For the first time in several years, in Baltimore we are able to arrange a round of golf for those that would like to play. It is planned for the morning of Wednesday 3rd from 7am at the Woodlands Golf Course which is about 30 minutes from the hotel. Hire of clubs is available and transportation arranged to and from the hotel to the course.

If you would like to arrive a little earlier and play golf, please let us know so that we can finalise a cost per person

Since foundation DBTG has developed into a community where members freely exchange ideas and concerns, experience and expertise on issues such as operational safety and efficiency, technical analysis and innovation, environmental matters, operator training, maritime security and so on.

DBTG meetings, organised by terminal operators for terminal operators, provide a private forum for full, frank consideration of key regional and international issues confronting the industry.

To ensure privacy and to facilitate full discussion of all – sometimes sensitive – matters its meetings are open to DBTG Members, Associate Member and invited Guests ONLY.
